<para>Host reservation capability introduces additional restrictions for the
allocation engine during lease selection and renewal. In particular, three
major checks are necessary. First, when selecting a new lease, it is not
sufficient for a candidate lease to be not used by anyone else. It also must
not be reserved for anyone else. Second, when renewing a lease, additional
check must be performed whether the address being renewed is not reserved
for anyone else. Finally, when a host renews an address, the server has to
check whether there's a reservation for this host, so the exisiting (dynamically
allocated) address should be revoked and the reserved one be used instead.
